This is something I’ve wanted to do since last year. We may not have a terribly diverse range of commenters here at Riddlethos, but what we lack in numbers, we make up for with devotion, and – dare I say it – class?
That is to say, there’s been some funny shit expressed through comments over 2010. Here’s a few examples.
Since I picked this as one of the best Scatter Stormings of 2010, you may have already re-visited the hilarious line of discourse that takes place in the comments. If not, let me summarize: SiliconNoob suggests that perhaps Ethos can’t identify with Kratos because he doesn’t have breasts. (Referring to Kratos, not Ethan. I think.) After a few back-and-forth comments between the two of them, DarthGibblet enters the scene to offer his usual, highly intellectual take on the situation:
Now that’s just embarrassing now matter how you slice it. For both of them, really.
One of our favorite things to do here at Riddlethos is countdown lists. It’s a quick an easy solution to filling theme weeks with appropriate content, and it often leads to us writing some of our best stuff. Weird but true. Anyway, one of the pesky things about countdown weeks is that you have to count. Which sometimes leads to confusion. Like when I labeled this post 4 instead of 2. Ethos was quick not to fix, but instead point out my mistake:
Bah is right.
After a month-long hiatus, I returned to Riddlethos will all the grace and gusto you’d expect. That is to say, I epic failed right out of the gate, with my inability to identify the object in my own post’s picture. SiliconNoob was quick to inform me, however, with a comment that surely wasn’t condescending in the least.
These are sort of fun. I might do more of them. MAYBE. For now, I’m hungry. And apparently my three days off of work will now only be two, because I just got a call from the restaurant. Bloody hell, I had planned to do nothing but play Dead Space.
Anyway. Ethan’s in New York right now playing 3DS, the lucky bastard. According to his facebook, he’s played Ocarina of Time 3D and jizzed in his pants. Oh, and if you haven’t heard, the 3DS will cost $250, not $300, and it releases on March 27 in North America. The battery life still sucks though, as far as anyone knows. That’s about all I know, hopefully Ethan will come through with some impressions from the event. Eh?
